The Ocean City Museum Society has established a nonprofit partner fund at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES). Establishing the fund was a decision that the Board made to provide for enhancing and strengthening the mission of the Society.
The Society is joining a number of other Eastern Shore non-profits that have put their trust in the CFES. The CFES has a proven record of growing invested funds.
The mission of the Museum Society is to inspire and support the interpretation and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of Ocean City, Maryland, the Worcester County coastal region, and equally, the historical role performed by the United States Life-Saving Service, and to preserve with subsequent mandate the 1891 structure that once served as the Ocean City Station. It strives to be the premier organization dedicated to the preservation, education and research of the history of coastal Worcester County, Maryland.
Establishing the fund will offer the Society a source for new initiatives including but not limited to exhibits, community programs and acquisition of historical artifacts. The fund also will allow the Society to explore opportunities to increase exhibit space and partner with other local agencies and businesses to preserve the historical legacy of Ocean City.
We thank you for your support!
